Like most of my bras, the cups on this one are too far apart/small for my shallow boobs. It was also probably a mistake to go for a push-up when I could get quad boob at the top. This model used to be my go-to, my best fit, my favorite. But ever since I started migrating to bras that fit me better, this model doesn't fit me as well. And I never did have much luck with going up to VS 34DDs. Oh well.
The quality is very good, though, it's unobtrusive under shirts, and I got it in the colors I wanted. Comfort is fine (aside from the ... fact that the cups are too dang small for me), and my older bras of this model might have stretched a bit but they were even more poorly-sized and I've had those since I-don't-remember-when. Might have been two years. Overall, not bad, would recommend giving it a try in the store at least. Just make sure you have all your boobage in there, and probably don't wear push-ups every day like I did.

I bought this when i was still figuring out my "right size", and 34Ds seemed to be working better than 36 C. I really am a 34dd, at times DDD/E. This was the closest I had ever gotten to proper fit, or at least I thought so when i was in the fitting room. Unfortunately, this one failed sooo hard. Its a damn shame this doesnt fit, because its very cute. When i tried it on in store, it seemed to fit, and i didnt really do much other than raise and lower my arms to see if it moved at all. once i got it home, i ... had it on for less than a day (of course i took the tags off), and it was awful!
The straps, while topped in very soft material, are thicker and "no slip" on the front half and not stretchy, they only have give on the non decorated back part. so, they tend to pinch and cut into your shoulders if adjusted tight enough, and fall off if not. the cups are soft and the padding is very plush. when i first put myself in it, i love the way i look: great cleavage, almost smooth back, hides under t-shirts. but the band has the same issue that most VS bras have: its meant for comfort, not a snug fit to support your breasts (Although this band is better than the Very Sexy line). So, as i settled in, it rode up, my boobs went out the bottom, and it pinched me in the armpits and cut into my shoulders. if i tighten the band the all the way, it rolls onto itself, makes heinous back fat, and still isnt stiff or strong enough to support. it just feel like a strip of elastic. one of the fitters at VS said i might not be suited to the Body by Victoria line of bras because of my shape, so if they're right, perhaps this just isn't meant for full on bottom, wide breasts.
All that being said, i love the look. the pink and white striped fabric its covered in it smooth and silky, there are little rhinestones on the sides and lace, a tiny lace trim on the cups and straps, siiiigh. I know im never going to wear it, so in the drawer it sits until i can find a way to sell it! It may work better for someone firmer who needs less band support and is more close set- but thats a complete guess. good luck https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
